What is SolarWinds Network Performance
Monitor?

SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) is a network monitoring system the provides comprehensive discovery and monitoring and dynamic mapping tools for on-premises, hybrid, and cloud.

Why Should You Use the SolarWinds Connector?

The SolarWinds connector provides visibility into the assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • ensure users are managed per your security policies

  • derive relationships between assets, users, applications, and data

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the SolarWinds REST API and ingests only meta-data about SolarWinds devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
